Photographer Bruce Weber's stylish documentary about the life and
times of troubled jazz trumpeter and singer Chet Baker. The
Oscar-nominated film features rare performance footage and
interviews with Baker in the last year of his life.
A primary exponent of the West Coast sound during the 1950s, Chet
Baker matched this achievement with a secondary career as a singer,
achieving considerable fame and success. However, it was as a jazz
trumpeter that he first made his name, winning his first Downbeat
poll in 1948 and then making the key recordings that launched the
West Coast movement, with the Lighthouse Allstars and then Gerry
Mulligan. This 4CD set includes tracks that illustrate the meteoric
rise to fame that Baker experienced from the late '40s through to
around 1952 when the Mulligan quartet was in full flight. This is
one of the first Properbox sets to be issued in new slimline
packaging - half the thickness of the original sets but with all
the same information and produced to the same exceptional quality.
